CROSSLAKE — Ron Manger, Fifty Lakes, will present a program on criminal activity in the early days of the Brainerd lakes area as part of the Crosslake Historical Society Back Porch program.
“Murder, Kidnapping, Robbery and Mayhem in the North Country” will start at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 27, at the Crosslake Historic Log Village.
Manger’s stories include a 1937 kidnapping by a young Crosby/Ironton man seeking fame through crime, a murder in Crosslake by a local man and the infamous Brainerd bank robbery.
Manger, a historian, has evidence of other misdeeds that took place in the north country and will explain the process of how he tracked down the information.
